SACRED REST® RETREAT UK – 5 DAY RESIDENTIAL YIN YOGA + WELLNESS RETREAT IN THE BRITISH COUNTRYSIDE – DERBYSHIRE, UK

.

Just imagine waking up slowly + gently, with rays of warm sunshine peaking through the curtains… You lay there for just a little longer, after a deep, restful night’s sleep… You take a full body stretch + eventually roll out of the soft white covers, moving your body towards your bedroom door… There you find a warm soothing drink + a nutritious morning snack, to gently wake you up + start to nourish your body (+ your soul) at the beginning of the day

.

You faintly smell incense already burning + hear the soft sounds of Tibetan singing bowls… Or maybe it is the deeply resonant chant of Om quietly carried upon the air to your sleepy chamber… It is the background music that is gently moving your energy, already encouraging you into the healing space that you are about to step into…

.

But there is no rush… You can take your time… You sip the warming tonic, break-the-fast, allow your body to absorb all the goodness…

.

One by one everyone starts to emerge, quietly coming together into the light, white, open space… You smile at each other as you take your places on yoga mats + meditation cushions… but you are still waking slowly, still honouring what you need… and that’s more than OK…

.

You sit in silent meditation, focusing on the breath… Whatever comes up in this space is absolutely fine, it is a safe space… You have complete permission to just be yourself, be however you need to be, working with a beautiful mix of yin yoga, breath work, guided meditation, visualisation, yoga nidra + Chinese Medicine wisdom…

.

You barely move off the mat – laying or sitting or fully supported – nothing is too challenging, nothing is too much… You don’t have to have done any of it before, you don’t have to be an expert at anything, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, there is no pressure, no perfectionism… It is all super gentle, mindfully healing + beautifully chilled… You can just come + lay down if you like, it’s honestly all OK…

.

You then go to the long banquet table on the bright, warm terrace + the most delicious brunch is served… So much colourful produce – the fruit, the veggies, the savoury bites, the sweet + nutritious delights – you get stuck in, your body welcoming the vegan-vegetarian goodness infusing every cell…

.

Lunch + dinner are a purely joyful repeat – including delicious desserts + a warming herbal nightcap in the evening…

.

And when your time is your own… you rest, sleep, breathe, read and journal… you spend time outdoors on the verandah, lay down in the sunshine + take a nap, or go sit down by the river… you listen to inspirational podcasts, chat to the other people (or not, it’s up to you), receive downloads + guidance from your intuition, walk for miles in the countryside or have a gentle stroll in the grounds… you choose…

.

Whatever YOU need, whatever your body wants, whatever your soul craves, whatever your spirit desires…

.

THIS is sacred rest® + it is ALL your own…

.

So, will you join me? Will you honour yourself + the deep, transformational rest that you are seeking? The rest that we all truly need after the past two years – will you allow me to hold that beautiful gentle space for you?

RETREAT TESTIMONIALS:

.

“Let me tell you, if you want to sink into deep, deep self care, if you want to be held in the most beautiful gentle, yet powerful way I have ever experienced, if you crave giving yourself space so you can let go of things that no longer serve you – not by doing intense, quick deep dives, but slowly, gently, hour by hour + day by day, not by doing, but by simply being… then you need Rhiannon + her Retreat in your life.” – Annika

.

.

“It’s a great investment in yourself, in your health + mental wellbeing – and in your business too… The structure + the opportunity for lots of alone time or social time (whatever you need) means it fills everyone up, no matter the type of person…” – Ilga

.

.

When I think of being allowed to rest I think of Rhiannon… When I think of being gentle, being healthy + being kind I think of Rhiannon… I was lucky enough to be at Rhiannon’s first retreat in France + the lessons I took from there have been passed onto my children… Rhiannon has given me permission to stop feeling the need to be busy always… She is the rest goddess + her knowledge of yin yoga, Chinese medicine, rest + acupuncture is all weaved into her work… It truly is lovely, educational + a treat that everyone should allow themselves…” – Tina

.

.

“If you are serious about longevity in your business + living your best life, then this retreat offers you a critical (and often the most neglected) piece to that puzzle… you’ll want the retreat to last longer!” – Katy

.

.

“It is absolutely essential to anyone in business who is constantly striving + giving to others… it is life changing!” – Natasha

.

.

“Just do it – you owe it to yourself to indulge your soul…” – Jo

.

.

“You will love it, it’s a great way to replenish our energies. It’s important to be selfish in a positive way – spending time on ourselves allows us to be better with helping others…” – Charlotte

ABOUT RHIANNON:

Hello! Perhaps you’re brand new to me + my bespoke blend of Chinese Medicine wisdom + extreme gentleness, but you’re interested + it resonates with you… Often referred to as the Five Element Wellness Woman, I primarily help successful + sensitive women to slow down + recover from burnout + fatigue, by bringing more calm, balance + mind-body wellness into their lives…

.

I hold safe space for rest + gentle healing via my Sacred Rest Retreats, 1-1 online immersions, self-study video courses + audio healing sessions – using a unique mixture of acupuncture, Yin Yoga, guided meditation, coaching, energywork, the Five Elements + Chinese Medicine wisdom…

.

I have been treating patients in clinic as an acupuncturist for 13+ years, practising a style that integrates Five Element Acupuncture + TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)… so I have been working with the Five Elements, these energies + this ancient medicine for a LONG time, but I’ve also been living a “Five Element Life” + embodying this wisdom for far longer than that, having started as a patient of acupuncture during my late teens, in the early 2000s…

.

I also trained as a coach with CTI in 2013, before doing my Yin Yoga teacher training in 2016 – a gentle style of yoga that is based in Chinese Medicine + actually uses the channels / meridians (or energy pathways) that we use in acupuncture, which made it a seamless fit into my healing repertoire… If you’re wondering what I sound like + what kinds of things I might speak about on retreat, then check out my super calming podcast – POWERFULLY GENTLE
